Mori Tadashi

Japanese, born 1940


Mori Tadashi is known as a driving force behind the contemporary ceramic movement in Japan. As a young man, he worked as a designer in the Yokkaichi ceramic factory, where he developed new designs and decorative glazes. An international exhibition of ceramics in 1964, and sculptural pieces by the American Peter Voulkos (1924–2002) in particular, inspired Mori to become an independent studio potter.
